In September the Charleston Music Hall announced that it would be taking the reins from Charleston Creative Parliament and begin producing Charleston's Pecha Kucha series in conjunction with the Charleston Arts Festival. Yesterday CMH announced the first Pecha Kucha of 2018, to be held on Tues. Jan. 9 at 7 p.m. Tickets are $12/adv., $14/day of, and can be purchased online.

Quick refresher: Pecha Kucha (which translates to "chit chat" in Japanese) is an event that features speakers talking about a topic for 6 minutes and 40 seconds, usually featuring 20 slides every 20 seconds.

In a statement CMH says, "The Music Hall, with help from our collaborators and artist liaison Terry Fox, is focused on developing a strong, interesting, and diverse presenter line up from an array of different artistic, creative, and entrepreneurial disciplines and encourage collaboration, communication, and support in Charleston’s creative community."

January's speakers so far (two more speakers will be added in the coming weeks) include: Charleston Moves executive director Katie Zimmerman; owner of brand and dance studio, Dance Lab, Jenny Broe; soul-funk artist Manny Houston a.k.a. Alan Fame; hip-hop artist Benjamin Starr; YESAND creator Joel Sadler; and executive director of Charleston Jazz, Mary Beth Natarajan.
